Glowing yeast lights the way to better biofuels

Deploying a technique that promises to supercharge the development of biofuels, researchers at Princeton University have found a way to make yeast cultures glow when producing next generation fuels that could power cars and airplanes. The glowing cultures address a major challenge that has slowed biofuel production: developing yeast strains that produce valuable chemicals and […]
